Who cares? It's just Muslims killing MuslimsAt least 25 'Palestinian refugees' taking shelter in a mosque in the Yarmouk 'refugee camp' outside Damascus were killed on Sunday when Syrian jets hit the camp.
Let's go to the videotape.
But what's most curious about this story is what's not being said by 'Palestinian activists.' Here's the sum total of what Electronic Intifada founder Ali Abunimah has had to say about the attack:
UNRWA statement on horrific violence in Syria's Yarmouk camp repeats call on all to protect Palestine refugees. unrwa.org/etemplate.php?…

And here's what the 'Palestine Solidarity Committee' has had to say:
Terrible loss of life at al-Yarmouk camp

Not even a condemnation? If those were Israeli jets attacking, the Security Council would already be in session. For that matter, if Israeli troops were anywhere in the region and someone else's forces got through, Israel would be condemned.
Admittedly, the 'Palestinian Authority' has condemned Syria.
In Ramallah, Palestinian officials blasted the Syrian government for the attack.
"We condemn in the strongest terms the crime of Assad's regime in Yarmouk refugee camp, and call on all international parties, including the states that still back this regime, to act immediately and stop these massacres against Syrians and Palestinians in Syria," PLO official Yasser Abed Rabbo told the AP.In the meantime, the Syrian refugees are fleeing to Lebanon.
So where are all the 'Palestinian activists'? Where are the rest of the Arab countries and the Arab League? Where, for that matter, is Abu Mazen? Could it be that since it's only Muslims killing Muslims, no one gives a damn?
Bet on it.
